relative movement and slight misalignment between the
adjoining sections of matting.
The sequence for laying an entire field is as
1. The main runway
2. The lateral taxiways
3. The taxiway that is parallel to the runway
4. The parking stands and storage areas
The above sequence may be modified in the
interest of gaining time in the overall installation by
laying the main runway and the parallel runway at the
same time. Then the lateral taxiways and parking area
can be installed.
